Wben a child is learning to wnlk, if you enn induce the little creature to keep ils eye fixed on an)' point in ndvnnce, hi will generally "nnviijuie to Unit point without capsizing, hut distract its ntten lion by word or Ret from the ubjf ct before it, Btnl down (.-nt-g the baby. Tho rule itpplies lo childrt-n of a larger growth. The mnn who slnrlB in life with n deler minnlion to reach n certain position, and adheres unwaveringly lo bis purpose, re jecting ihu advice of the overcautious, nnd uelyuig Iho Riiuries ol the timid, rarely fRtls if he live long enough lo reach the goal for which be aet out. ll' circum stances oppose him, be bends them to his exigencies by ihe force of energetic, in domitable will. On Ihe other band, be who vncilUles in hia course, 'yawning." rs the sailors say, toward nil points of the compass, is pretty sure lo become a help leR castaway before bis voyage of life is half completed. There can be no question among philosophic observers of men and events, that fixedness of purpose is a grand element of human succees. Weathercock men ar e nature's failure. They nrc good for nothing. Heller downright bigheailed obstinacy than eter nal vacillation; better willful blindness to danger, however menacing, than the hes itancy which is forever weighing the pos sibilities of defeat against the cliinces of victory. The men of action, whoso names are written imperishably on the page of history, were men of iron. Silky fellows tuay do for intrigue, but the founders, and conquerors, nnd liberators nnd sav iors of empires have nil been of the war rior metal. No human bcin who habit ually halts between two opinion", who cannot decide promptly, nnd, having de cided, act as if there were no such word as f-iil, can ever be gieat. Ceasnr would never have crossed the Rubicon, nor Washington ihe Delaware, bad thpy not fixed their stern gaze on objects far be yond tho perils at their feet. Country and City. A worthy friend recently said to mr: "A gentleman of observation fiotn one of our principal cities of the West, stated to me, that in point of (act, almost all the leading men of the cities were from the country, Rnd hnd been raised farmer' sons. The reasutis seemed lo me quite obvious. The vigorous health, patient industry, thorough economy, nnd hard thinking necessary to success, are the product of the country, and but seldom ol the town or city. A large part of the merit nnd talent of the country, doubtless remains upon and adorns our farms. An other is drawn by a spirit of enterprise lo lo our towns. When they enter, they find an active competition that brings out their best efforts. Success on their part, takes away the necessity for effort on their chil dren, and the next result is, that their children become reduced in means nnd merit, and every element of success, and are driven to some refuge in vice or petty employment. It is, therefore, the duty of the man who has been successful in town lo retire to the country again, that his children si ay partake, as fur ns possi ble, ol Ins advantages. In traveling, one day last year, the rain drove us into u country tavern, where h fat man, of some fifty years of Rgo, enter tained us with the following quaint, but not improbable theory : "You see, sir, everything comes around in abont four generations. First conies Ihe entcrpris ing and hard-working fellow, who gets the money, men his children begin to live iu s'yle, but their parents' example and stamina keep them pretty well up but their children begin to run down, in their hands the property is wanted, and they die poor, and the fourth race begins in poverty and works upward agaiu. lieecher en Farming. Femals Majority in Citiks. Males predonderate in the country females in cities. This is occasioned by the influx of women in search of employment which they cannot find in the country. In the city of Brooklyn, in the year 1855, the excess of females was ten thousand nine hundred and ninety-two; in New-York, Iwenty-three thousand nine hundred and thirty-two. In 1 050, tho excess was seven thousand three hundred and thirty-five, so that tho probitblu excess is near thirty thousand. In loO, the excess in Boston was five tliotisaud three hundred and thirty-three, nnd in Philadelphia, fifteen thousand eight hundred and eighty. The proportion is ubout equal, the excess be ing near four per cent, of the entire pop ulation in all but Drooklyo, which is about five per Cent. Position. "Mnn shniild not marry," it Is commonly aid, "unless they can not only maintain for thnmielvos tho social position to which they havo been accustomed, hut extend thn ben efit of that position to thoir wives and children. A wnmnn who marriee is entitled tn ho kept in thosaoVo rank and position in which she was reared." Woentiialy disavow those doctrines. It should bn the aim of every married couplo tn make thoir own fortunes. No inn and daughter, ho become man and wife, arc entitled to rely on thoir patrimoi: v, but should willingly commeneo lifo at a lower atop in tho sovinl ladder than that occupied by their parents, so that thoy may have tho merit and Imppinosspf rising, if possible, to tho top, Imngino tho ense of a couplo who by great prisovuronco have acquired pos session of ininiousii wealth, and uro living in a stylo iif enso anil spendor which is no more than thn reward of industry. Will anrhodv av ihat thn children of such "old folks" should livo in the sumo grunduur as tbelr parents ? Tho idea is preposterous. Thpy havo no right to suuh luxury, they have (lono noth ing to desorre it ; and if thoir parents are honest in dividing their property among tliem. thev can havo no moans of support ing it. Yet marriages ore contracted on tho principlo th.-.t tho married couple shall ho ohlo to keep up tho rank to which they havo boon aceustomed under tho paternal roof, ll is such notions as this engender ed by Miilthusinit philosophers and fostered by lady pride. that arn filling our country with ' poor old muids," coquettish young ladies, with nii'O cigar-smoking, good lor nothing men. nnd our colonies, alas, with most miserable and barbarous old bachelors. .Xm th lii ilish Mjil. Ironical Proverbs for the Million. Always put otf till In morrow whut you can do to-day, for by that moans you will have timu to think how you can dj it best and with tho least incouionionce to your self. Nover do any man a favor. You will thus avoid being postered with a superflui ty of false ptofossinns of ntornal friendship, grMitudo, and all that balderdash. It you borrow money never pay it. You can cousnla your conseioncn by tho boliol that it tho lender hnd really needed it you wouldn't havo got it ; rrgn, this monoy was of no use tn him, nnd if you hadn't borrowed it ho would havo spoilt it foolishly. Tnko euro of tho cents and the dollars will take c.tro of thomsolvos providing von get them. Novor neglect to pick up a dol lar in pr.if'oioneo tn a omit. Uuu't pick up oiihor if you can't flud them. Gut nil thn credit you can, but norer trust tiny one. II y this process you can speedily acquire a fortune. Alwuys consider youisolf bolter than any body olso. Woman is weak. Itomombor (bis : Nover givo your wife anything that will strengthen her; and especially avoid ploasing hor. By ploasing hor you encourage hor in think ing you married hor nil for lore, aud not to have your old clothes mended and washed. Economy is not tho road to wealth, be- ciuho, if you are economical and save your inonov, what honefit is it lo your neighbor, who lives and trios to get rich otf of your expenditures r Never study economy until you uro linuhlo tc do anything olso. It' you aru wealthy, you have no need of economy if you aru in poverty, economy is usoIojs, for you havu nothing to save. How a Soldier Feels in Battle. A young French officer thus writes of his first experience in buttle : Our dflicers kept us back, for wo wero not numerous enough to churgo upon the unemy. This wns, moreover, most prudent, for this murderous flic so fatal to the white coats did us but littlo harm. Our conical balls penetrated their dome masses, while those of thn Anstriuns whistled pas', our ours and respected our persons. It wns the first time I iiad faced fire, iter wns I the only olio. Well. 1 am satisfied will) myself. True, dodged tho first balls. but Iluury iv , thoy say, did tho same at the beginning ol every hutllo. It la, in fact, physical effect independent of tho will. ' Hut, this tribute paid, if you could only foel how each shot electrifies yon. It is liko a whip on a racer's legs' Tho balls whistle past you, turn up tho earth around you, kill one, wound nnothor, and you hard ly nolico them. You grow intoxicated, tho smell of gunpowder mounts tn your brain The eye becomes bloodshot, and tho look is fixed upon tho enoiny. There it something of all the passions in that torriblo passion excitnd in a soldier by tho sight of blood and tho tumult of battle. ' Everybody who has tried it testifies to tho peculiar intoxication that is produced by being in a buttle. There is no infatuating iiilluenco about tho smell of powder, Ihu shrill whistle of a bullet, and tho sight of bn man blood, that instantly transforms run from cowards to heroes from women sometimes to inonstors. None can toll of tho naturo or mystery of thnt iiilluouco but thosii who have bouu in the fray thorn-solves." Rules for Growing Old. At tha lato Commencement of Yalo Co! legn tho Rur. Daniel Waldo, as the oldest graduate present, (of the class of 1788). thus clusod a speech to tho assembled Al umni : I mn nnw an old man. I havo seen near ly a century. Do you want to know how to grow old slowly and happily? Lot mo loll you. Always eat slowly, maslieato well Go to your food to your rost, lo your occu pations, smiling. Keep a good naturo and soft tumpur every where. Never give way to anger. A violent tempest of passion tear down tho constitution moro than a ty phus lover. Cultivuto a good memory, and tn do this you must always bo communica tive : repeat what you havo read and talk about it. Dr. Johnson' great memory was owing to his communicativeness. You, young iiion, who are just leaving college lot mo advise you lo oliooso a profession in which you oan oxorciso your talent tho bost, and at tho sauio tune be honttl The bust profession Is tho ministry of the gospel. If you huvo not talents enough lo bu minis tor, bo a lawyer, but bo an lionost lawyer. I'opoB iinrt Simula no altered In read t 'An honest man is the noblest work of Cod.'
